Will this libc be interoperable with DLLs in the MS PE/COFF format? IMO this
would be essential. Microsoft's own Interix / Unix for NT did not catch on
because you could not the many system services when you decided to use the
Unix-like libc.

If someone wants to run a glibc on Windows, without the requirement of
interoperability with the system services, he can just run a Linux+glibc
system inside a virtual machine.
